Nagging injuries at the most inopportune times have dogged prominent Jamaican sprinter, Asafa Powell for years as he tries to return to the top of the track world. His latest setback is not doing him any favors in trying to regain that form.
Powell was set to run on Easter Monday (April 1) for the first time since he pulled up during the 100m final at the 2012 summer Olympics in London after damaging his groin. Scheduled for the Stawell Gift meet in Australia this week, the former 100m world record holder has pulled out of the race as a result of tightness in his hamstring, according to the Associated Press.
Reports are that Powell was unable to run full speed during warm-ups on Saturday, feeling soreness in said hamstring and was still experiencing it Monday morning.Click Here To Read More
